I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol



Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees, over 20 in all shapes and sizes!!

The majority of my Christmas decorations are placed in the same spot every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but it is like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas.......

I do try to add a few new things and change up things a bit but for the most part, these decorations are part of my Christmas traditions and I will not change them until I can no longer decorate like I do......

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

How I Decorated That Magnificent Wreath!!

Remember the wreath that I received from Tree Classics to do a review on?

Well, I finally decorated it for Christmas to match the decor in my Living Room......

I usually use hot glue when decorating my wreaths.

 But I wired the florals in to this wreath!!

I did this because if I wanted to change how it was decorated in a few years, I could.

I went through my tub of Christmas Florals that I pick up on Clearance after the Holidays every year and found 4 of these large poinsettia sprays!!
I believe I bought them at Lowes several years ago......

I thought they would fit in with the red and gold Christmas color theme that I have going on in the Living Room........

Once again, I like to use this ottoman for doing non glue related simple crafts so I cover it with a vinyl tablecloth so please excuse the watermelons on the tablecloth!!!
I shaped the sprays and wired them to the frame of the wreath.......

I also found several gold berry spray and I also wired them onto the wreath.......
I made a bow out of the ribbon the I used in other places in the Living Room
 And I simply hung one of my Victorian Doll Head ornaments, bought at Michaels many years ago, in the center of the wreath.....
I did not want to over do the decorating of this wreath and I think those poinsettia sprays were perfect for it!!
I did add another set of lights to the wreath because I do like a LOT of lights!!

So here it is, hanging on the large mirror made to look like a window, in the Living Room!!
It goes well with the Tree, don't you think?
And I used up some of the Florals that I already had!!
 Now, it truly is a Magnificent Wreath!!

I do highly recommend this Wreath and the Tree Classics Company!

The Company has been endorsed by the Chicago Tribune........
Please stop by and check out their site for Trees, Wreaths, Garlands, Lights and other Accessories!!

I am sure you will not be disappointed!!


I would  like to THANK Tree Classics for considering me and my Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas, for this Partnership Opportunity!!

  1. I remember this wreath...now it is such gorgeous! I love the decors you made. The victorian doll head is perfect for the style of your beautiful home. Very well done!

  2. Your wreath is just gorgeous Debbie and looks so pretty where you hung it. I love the Victorian head that you chose for the center and the poinsettias are so "you"! hugs...

  3. Your home is definitly one of a kind and no matter what the season it is a treasure to behold.......HPS Michelle

  4. Debbie, I love the way you did that wreath. It goes so well with your room. Beautiful. xoxo, Susie

  5. The wreath turned out great, Debbie! I love the red and gold look. I tend to go for different colors/themes for each area of the house when I decorate, and this year, I've been contemplating the "traditional" red for my living room. The Victorian doll ornament is perfect; I just love that!

  6. Beautiful wreath, Debbie! And, it does go very nicely with your tree! Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings, Cindy

  7. Great review. I love your wreath. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Hi Debbie, what a magnificent wreath and you did it proud. It looks wonderful on your mirror and fits in so well with your other decorations..Happy Weekend..Judy

  13. Oh Debbie, your wreath is so beautiful and Victorian looking! It looks absolutely gorgeous there in the window with those panels and those stockings, and does look good with the tree! Just beautiful!

  14. Beautiful job decorating the wreath, I love it when we get things on sale to use later and we actually find something to do with them. Great idea to wire it in just in case you want to change it up later. I hot glued my last wreath I made and so I can't reuse it for the next one I will be making up.

  15. Debbie, I do remember your wreath and you have made it beautiful with the red poinsettias and the doll head. It looks wonderful in your living room. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Christmas blessings,
